A pianist of ‘amazing power and panache’ (Daily Telegraph), Clare Hammond features two film shorts as a backdrop to music from the 17th to 20th centuries. Kenneth Hesketh’s score, specially written for Clare, accompanies the expressionist film Hände (Stella Simon & Miklós Bándy; 1923). Ed Hughes’s The Nose is a new score to Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker’s 1963 short film inspired by Nikolai Gogol’s dream-like story of a government official whose nose goes missing.  Clare was recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award in recognition of her achievements in 2015, including three award-winning CDs.
